During the operational phase of a wind farm a great deal of things happen both inside and around the wind turbines that affect the performance and availability. All wind turbines are equipped with sensors that continuously feed the wind farm SCADA system with data.
Measuring the wind is an obvious first step to developing a wind farm. Unlike a conventional power plant where fuel is transported to it, the fuel for a wind farm must be discovered and quantified. This is why many refer to the early stage as wind prospecting.
Wind power turbines convert wind into energy. In order to know how well and effective that conversion is, it is of utmost importance to really understand wind conditions at the site not only during project development but also during the operational phase of the turbines.
A handy case study guide for established wind power developers, start-ups and consultants. A wind resource assessment is the vital first step in every wind project, yet it remains one of the most challenging tasks.
